Derby Winner Nyquist Taking Heavy Action in Preakness Stakes Betting

It should come as no surprise that the undefeated Nyquist is the heavy favorite for the 141st running of the $1.5 million Preakness Stakes (G1) coming up on Saturday, May 21 at Pimlico in Baltimore, Md.

The Kentucky Derby (G1) champ is at Preakness Stakes betting odds of 5-7 at online sportsbook Bodog, and a victory would send the colt off to New York for a bid at becoming just the 13th Triple Crown winner.

Odds Value to be Found in Wide Open Kentucky Derby

While the betting favorite has won three consecutive editions of the Kentucky Derby (G1), the undefeated Nyquist may be hard pressed to make it four in a row.

The Doug O’Neill trainee is the betting favorite for the Kentucky Derby at online sportsbook Bodog at +300, and it is hard to knock his perfect record in seven starts, his last win coming in the Florida Derby (G1) at Gulfstream Park.

Nyquist Heading to Louisville as Kentucky Derby Favorite

The undefeated Nyquist is headed to Churchill Downs in Louisville in four weeks as the betting favorite for the Kentucky Derby (G1) after he defeated the previously perfect Mohaymen in the $1 million Florida Derby (G1) on April 2.

Nyquist is listed at betting odds of +300 at Bodog for the Kentucky Derby, now just four weeks away. The Doug O’Neill trainee is perfect in seven starts and looking to give his trainer a second win in the Run for the Roses. O’Neill won with I’ll Have Another in 2012.
